asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he will remove the hardship on the Special Reserve officers of the Royal Army Medical Corps by placing them on the same rate of pay as temporary officers, Royal Army Medical Corps, as at. present the pay and allowances of the former are about £50 per annum less than for the latter?1575W
§ Mr. FORSTER
This question was fully considered by the Cabinet Committee on Officers' Pay, and it was decided not to make the change proposed. These Special Reserve officers get the same emoluments as Regular officers, and, like them, will get the new children's allowances at full rates in the junior ranks, while the officers serving under special contract will get half rates only.
